Wychwood might just be the world’s first “blackgrass” band. We’re a duo – Chrissy Steinbock and Tim Kitz – who play old murder-ballads and generally dark or strange traditional folk songs, with some bright and sentimental spots thrown in for contrast. Some days we’re acoustic purists. Some days we like to corrupt traditional folksongs with elements of black metal, ambient, and noise music, in an attempt to make folk music dangerous again.
At our concerts you can expect dusty vocal harmonies backed by banjo and guitar, along with a smorgasbord of other instruments – accordion, saw, harmonica, bass, glockenspiel, dream ukulele, and probably some other instruments we either can’t remember or have picked up since writing this.
